Prayer for Peace

God of the nations look upon the lands
devastated by war
and show us the way to peace.
Turn our guns into plough
and our bombs into bread.
Remove hatred from our hearts
and vengeance from our memories.
Give us the wisdom and the will
to end terrorism and war
whether in lands far or near,
or in the confines of our families
and communities.
Help us to remember that we are
one world and one family.
Grant this through the intercession
of all peacemakers of all times and places,
especially those who suffered
persecution and death
for the sake of justice and peace.

Thomas Menamparampil
